This isn't a surprise. If you read books by a lot of celebrities and bands from the 60's and 70's in particular young girls are all over the place.
The culture was a lot different back then and to this day I bet you all these people no matter what they say and deny really don't see anything wrong
with taking advantage of these young kids. I think with consent being at 16 rather than 18 as well they seems to think that when a kid is nearly 16,
like 14/15 they see it as not being that bad when even a 16 year old who is legally allowed to have sex should still be viewed as someone who is young
and easily influenced.
Sadly a lot of women who were young at the time and willingly slept with these celebrities still see little wrong with it when really they were
terribly taken advantage of. I saw an interview where an unidentified women claimed to have slept with many famous musicians when she was 14 all the
way up to when she was older and she acted like she was just having harmless fun. She seemed to think because it wasn't rape and that she consented
that it was ok. It was a huge thrill for her and she couldn't believe that these stars were interested in this young girl. She was obviously
flattered at being chosen when they had models around and plenty of other women and because she had a good time and enjoyed herself it was like she
thought that everything was ok. She even bragged about being flown out to meet one artist in particular (she never mentioned names) who she stayed
with over the summer. I would have thought that she was a fantasist, but reading bands autobiographies from the 70's and 80's they don't even hide
the fact that they are with under age girls, in one I read a while ago the guy even brags that the girl was a daughter of a well known celebrity and
he used to drop her of at her Catholic his school run by nuns on the back of his motorbike! Back then having a cute, slightly under age girlfriend
seems to have been fashionable.
Some people have no shame at all and these poor girls unfortunately have grown up to think that this bahavior is normal and ok. What worries me is
that the women in the interview was a mother and said even though she would not be happy if her daughter did the same thing she would not see it as
abuse to be reported to the police. I think these kids are damaged and obviously at the time think that it's something to brag about being with a
celebrity and as they get older still see it as something to brag about because they think it makes them somebody or appear to be more desirable since
they think that they must have been special or particularly attractive to have been chosen by someone famous who can have almost anyone they want.
